On to the Quarry! Can Lee make it in time to save Amanda?
This is all quite a set up to kill Amanda..How many clowns can you fit in a bulldozer? One! Computer, economics and now bulldozer guy Krusty Cavanaugh starts up the oh so scary bulldozer..
cue the huge bolder teetering on the edge of the cliff above Amanda! argh!!! Cue the scary music!! argh!! cue the sooo slow it is scary bulldozer!! eh??… Cavanaugh’s tough guy expression as he moves at a snail’s pace is just plain hilarious!!!!
Why not just shoot her.. They didn’t want her body found with a bullet hole? Okay.. but what about finding her body tied to a pipe?? Or as Francine would label it: an obvious suicide?!
So kind of them to give Lee a chance to get over there and untie her 🙂 Lee gets closer… the bulldozer gets closer…honk honk!.. this is about the point where I nod off..yawn!
Bozo: who the hell is that? (pointing to Lee and the Helicopter) .. my goodness.. I thought the next line was going to be: is it a bird? Is it a plane?? nope.. it’s The Scarecrow on a helicopter!!
Lee is in all out hero mode and… in a black jumpsuit!! How could I be so picky about this ending hmm? after all… what more could a girl ask for.. black… jump…. suit!!
Actually, not even the jumpsuit saves this dogs breakfast..
Lee rides the helicopter down to Amanda to free her while the Bulldozer approaches the boulders above Amanda..
Lee gets Amanda free and they make a run for it to the helicopter while Krusty shoots at them from the bulldozer… oh dear.. where is Lee’s back up??
Have no fear.. while the head clown and Bozo try and get away in their car, Lee’s back up arrives – Billy and Francine.. what would Lee do without them.. Lee should tell his boss how helpful they have been to him.. umm sorry? excuse me?? oh yeah.. Billy IS Lee’s Boss.. I keep forgetting that fact.. umm I can’t for the life of me imagine why.. anyway…
Oh no! Harry the helicopter guy got shot!!
Look out Lee!! (Note to any side kick of Lee’s other than Amanda: your time is limited!!) Lee goes to Harry to help him and Harry tells him to go (leave me he said- so Lee does!!! rofl.. does this remind people of anything???!!)
Lee’s boss can come help Harry! 😉
Yawn.. yep very very very long Helicopter chase.. guns shooting.. yawn..
Maybe we can come up with some lines that could have saved it.. Hmm.. how about this:
I care Lee.. even if it does squeak!
Anyone else want to have a go?
I really don’t get this whole Helicopter playing with the car business here at the end.. me thinks it’s time to fast forward.. plus.. there really isn’t a good view here of Lee in his black jumpsuit 😉 Ahhh Bozo and Macey just became Thelma and Louise.. so long!
I liked this screen cap! splat!! and with that.. the action finale is over.. hooray!
Tag time! and there goes the dad and his kiddies jogging past Amanda’s.. [Are we calling this smelly family the Pitts? ]
This is starting to feel a bit like Amanda is on the Truman show.. you know where they jog or drive around whatever on a loop? !!
Amanda comes in through the back door and calls: Mother!!!!!! Mother?
No answer.. Amanda makes sure no one is home, she sneaks into the kitchen while Lee waits outside for the signal..
Amanda sees a note on the blackboard LOL guess they found money huh!
Amanda: ohhh (to Lee) come on.. come on.. Lee slowly makes his way in.. too cute..
Amanda: she went to Mr Chicken with the boys they were starving!!
Lee’s keen to put the groceries down – they seem to be heavy! Lee carrying the groceries? Now that is bringin sexy back!!
Lee: it’s like you’re feeding an army.
Amanda: yes well I am.
Lee puts down the groceries: ohhh!!!
Amanda discovers the cereal box: Ohhhh!
I love how that’s all Amanda has to say with that look and Lee knows…
Lee: Oh I’m sorry I could find the er crunchy crawlers. So you’ll have to do with the Oaties.
[SMK’s new sponsors!! ]
I thought Francine was going to go do the groceries?? drat she got out of it! Actually the script never had Francine getting them- I think they added in the gag in that earlier scene but it didn’t make sense overall.. a bit like this episode really! )
Wait a minute.. this is the third time in this episode that we see Lee carrying a heavy physical load of some kind on Amanda’s behalf!! does this mean something??!! three times is hardly a coincidence no?!
Amanda puts the cereal box back: oh that’s alrig– she’s distracted by the envelope in Lee’s hand. -what’s that.
Lee: what? well it’s just err a form I’ve got to fill out.
Amanda: what is it? Am I still dead?
Lee: it’s for internal affairs Amanda.
Amanda: why don’t you just rip it up?
Lee: well ahh until I process the form, technically you are still dead.. it’s ahh agency policy.
Lee is stunned: ahhhh I guess so.
Amanda: yeah and could you reincarnate me at a higher salary? haaaaaaa!!!
Lee gives her a smile in response.. how can you resist right Lee?
[love her big laugh here.. again- they are so comfortable here! I like this gag as it plays on how ridiculous it is that Amanda’s dead till Lee hands in a form- he could reincarnate her at a higher salary – maybe! ] Given Amanda was kidnapped twice that day for an agency computer error, she deserves a day off at a minimum!!!! She shouldn’t need to flippin ask for one! grrrr..
They look very domesticated don’t they.. and Lee is looking a bit more casual.. You know, I don’t mind Amanda’s hair at this length so much..it looks a little longer. She’s looking good considering she’s been kidnapped twice that day!
BTW- until Lee hands in the form Amanda is officially still dead??.. I didn’t know Amanda was officially anything at the agency.. pha!!! don’t get me started on that!! Also, her joke about wanting a higher salary is a nice little set up for the storyline of ‘Murder between Friends’ just two episodes away..
For me, this episode like the tag, is a bit: Meh! Looking forward to hearing what you all think! soooo what do you all think? do tell!! Have you enjoyed this episode??
Up next is BJo’s two fab stats posts for Saved by the bells – and then: Burn Out is up!!! byeeee!
